QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: Four lifelong friends in their early 70s reunite in Las Vegas for the bachelor party of one of them who's marrying a much younger woman.
PLOT:
Billy (MICHAEL DOUGLAS) is finally getting married after 70 years of bachelorhood ... and it is to Lisa (BRE BLAIR), a woman who is only 32. He couldn't be happier, and all he wants to do is have a bachelor party in Las Vegas with his three best childhood friends. Two of them are ecstatic for the break in their humdrum senior citizen existence. Archie (MORGAN FREEMAN) has moved in with his doting, constantly worried son, Ezra (MICHAEL EALY), after suffering a mild stroke months ago. Sam (KEVIN KLINE) still feels out of place ever since he and his wife, Miriam (JOANNA GLEASON), moved to an active-adult community in Florida. Miriam gives Sam the one-time opportunity to have a one-night stand in Sin City as long as he never tells her about it. Archie, meanwhile, gambles half his pension and wins big at Blackjack.

The one problem is Paddy (ROBERT De NIRO), a widower who is still reeling from the death of his wife of four decades a year earlier. He and Billy were once best friends. But ever since he failed to show at his wife's funeral and only sent flowers with an impersonal note, Paddy has wanted nothing to do with him. Sam and Archie lure Paddy to Vegas under false pretenses, and the four are soon bickering, gambling, ordering around a hotel liaison named Lonnie (ROMANY MALCO), and fooling a young hothead named Dean (JERRY FERRARA) into thinking they are Mafia bosses from back East.

Eventually, we come to learn that Paddy's wife initially picked Billy over him, but Billy rejected her knowing that Paddy would make her a better husband. The dynamic is about to play out again with a free-spirited lounge singer named Diana (MARY STEENBURGEN). Both men are drawn to her even though Paddy is still grieving for his wife and Billy is engaged to be married in a couple of days.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Not likely. This film skews quite older than most of the movies released during the year, despite a cameo by 50 Cent and a plethora of very attractive young women featured throughout.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For sexual content and language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
